Fall in for town parade

A FLAG was raised at the Midsteeple in Dumfries on Monday to mark the start of Armed Forces Week.

And it will culminate tomorrow, Saturday, with a parade in the town centre on what is Armed Forces Day itself.

It will take place from 11.40 am until 12.30 pm and will be led by Dumfries and Annan Town Bands, and include retired and serving representatives of the armed forces.

Council Convener Councillor Malcolm Johnstone said: “Armed Forces Day is our opportunity to show our appreciation for those that have served and who continue to serve in our Armed Forces. In Dumfries and Galloway, our Armed Forces are very well supported by people from across the length and breadth of the region.

“I invite you all to join us on Saturday, 29 June, as we mark Armed Forces Day 2024 to thank them.”
